Fairly limited angle selection compared to that cheap Amazon one. Lower rated capacity too, but prob better build quality/comfort.

Just a note with the Bowflex benches.

There is a wobble about the middle axis of the back rest because of how it's designed. This means it can be slightly sketchy when benching more than 80lbs. It also means the bench cannot be used for step ups.

This seems like a huge issue. 80lbs isn't a lot of weight to bench, and a bench you can't put your weight on without being unstable is pretty useless.

That's barely stowable, lol. As an apartment dweller I found the MagicFit bench to be the best option if you're looking for something space saving when not in use.

These kinds of benches are aimed at teens, women, and weaklings so not useless. Real men get Rogue.

This bench is rated at 480 lbs. There's absolutely no wobble in this bench and have tested this myself much higher than 80lbs lol. Guess 99 percent of people that don't want to spend over 3x the price on a rogue bench are not "real men."

This bench is way better built than most of the sub $300 range from Amazon and walmart.

No wobble pressing 2 plates with this bench.

I have the 5.1 stowable and no issues with weight. There can be an issue with the pin loosening which keeps the bench secured to the angle which has happened about 8 times in 3 years where I just rescrew the pin back in. Unsure why that happens but I use the bench almost daily. I would not do steps ups because of this and it is a bit high for them anyway, I am 5,10.

Has anyone else experienced any shipping issues with this bench? I ordered mine on October 19th and it's been stuck in Toronto since the 27th. Tracking info online just says "Delivery will be delayed from 4-7 days - Oversized". It's been 7 days and there's been no update since.

Probably just means the UPS driver just doesn’t want to carry it.

I'm in Quebec though so it wouldn't have even been out for delivery yet..
